If I have supported your cause, consider supporting mine and help me achieve my fundraising goal. Your donation helps the American Red Cross #endhomefires by installing FREE smoke alarms and providing fire safety training in our local communities. Luckily, I have not experienced a home fire, but I know those who have, it's a terrible loss. FACT: Seven times a day someone in this country dies in a house fire and more than sixty percent of fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms.
Donating $15 can cover the fire safety training and installation of 1 smoke alarm.
As a first responder to these local tragedies, the Red Cross is working to improve the odds of survival by as much as 25 percent by 2020.
Sound the Alarm. Save a Life is a recurring national event where Red Cross volunteers will be partnering with fire departments and community groups across the country to install FREE smoke alarms, educate families about fire prevention, and map fire escape routes.
